About This Class

Everyone knows how important safe and secure passwords are. And with so many different user accounts we all have, remembering all those different passwords can be a real headache.

So the solution is to have access to a safe and secure password manager application, which stores all this information securely, while allowing you to manage all the data simply and easily.

Many people will have heard of KeePass or Robo, and they are very popular. But there is another option out there, which is not only free to use, but also offers secure password data storage with bank-level encryption.

In this class I introduce you to my preferred password manager application, which it is, how to get your own copy of it plus an overview of the capabilites of the application.

Please note, that I am in no way related to the software makers, nor do i receive any financial consideration for promoting their product.

Close for easy access to your pulse Words by you being on this class. I take it that you are serious about your password protection. And in this class, I'm going to share with you my absolute favorite passwords manager in this class, I'm going to introduce you to last past dot com Last past dot com has been around for quite a number of years, and I have been using it myself for almost five years now. And I absolutely love it purely for the ease of use and the capacity it has to manage my passwords. And on top of that, it's free as well, even though I signed up to a premium account. But I'll tell you about the premium a little bit later. But what I would like to stress at this stage is that I have no relation to last pass. I'm not getting paid for no to introduce their product. I just feel as a user off their product. It's a really great product, and I would like you to get to know the product. And if you think it will work for you, then this might be the choice. What do you need to do to get hold off last past? Well, you go and Google for last pass. Don't come. Once you on your Web on their website, you download the software, then you create your free account. Then you let it in store for your particular browser. And that could be Internet Explorer, Google grown fire folks or even opera. And on top of that, for those people who use Apple as their preferred computers, it will also work on the Iowa's system. Once it's installed, you launch the ed on and you're ready to store your passwords. I'm going to take you through what it looks like and how you use it. So let's go and launch my fire folks application. So here we are. Firefox is in the process, off loading. I'm going to enlarge the screen so we can see it better. And here we are on Google. The first thing I do is look for last pass, so here we are. It's already found it, and the 1st 1 it's found is last past dot com, the last past password manager there are different sort of areas through the system, so you can choose those and investigate them further. If you do so wish, I just want to go to the main page where you can get access to download the free software. So here we are in last parts. It's a secure site identified by the https at the top and also by the padlock on the left hand side to download yourself when you want to download, I should say it's the application to your browser tools. You go and click on Lee. Get lost parts free. It will then prompt you to download it to your computer. Once it's downloaded, you click install, and that's as easy as it is. So what doesn't offer you? Well, it offers you two look your passwords in a vault that, in essence, means nothing else. But you only need one master key word to look into your last past account, and then you have access to all your store passwords. In addition to that, it also uses a bank level encryption to secure and scramble your data for secure transfer and storage. Last month has been around like I said, for a number of years now. And there are millions of users all over the world who used this product as happily as I have been doing for the last number of years myself to install and to get started. It's as easy as a few simple steps as outlined below. You download the application by clicking the get last pass free, and when you click that button there website will recognize how you got through that download button. So if you are using a Windows computer, it will give you access to the windows. Download options. If you're using IOS, it will give you the IOS download options. Once it's downloaded and installed, it will ask you to create your own account. Creating your own account requires you to sign up with your preferred email address, and you will need to create a strong master password and by strong master password. We're not talking about something like a B, C 123 or your wife's name or girlfriend's name or something silly like that. You really need to put an effort in to make your master password very difficult to crack. Once you then locked in, you are free to save any off your sites and those accompanying passwords. I'm not going to take you through the download process, since that is easy to do. I'm also not going to waste time on showing you how to install it, as that's easy to do as well. I'm going to quick give you a quick overview off what it will look like once you've installed it and activated it as your browser. Add on. I already have done that. So up here in the top right corner, you can see my last pass icon exactly gone. That last part's icon you can see I have access to my password manager. I have the option to quickly search for something such as skill share and by clicking just a couple of letters in here. I can now go to my school share account, click on the logon screen, and by clicking on one of the icons. I can complete that field automatically, and then I'm ready to sign in. I could also set that to do it automatically for me if I wish to do that. Other options you have available within your vault or in your password manager is basic things such as seeing all your sights neatly organized into folders. I'm not going to open them all because I don't want to share with you all my account details. So, unfortunately, I can't go into too much detail on these listings in my folders, but you can see I can organize them quite neatly. I also have the opportunity to create secure notes, which would be stored on late, and I have the option to create form fill opportunities. That means I can and securely any form filling information, any credit card, details or bank details. Once again, all that information, once it's safe, is being encrypted and stored securely. I also have the option to create and generate passwords on the fly, and you can see it creates scrambled passwords. I can make it even more complicated and saying, I want to password That's 29 characters long or I can create a password that is in particular shorter and say £10 word characters. But I can decide how complicated I want to make it. Do. I want to have it character types. Do I want to have other additional types in here? Number off minimum characters or make it pronounceable. So again, it allows me to make my passwords very defined to my preference. Something else do you have? The opportunity to do with this password manager is to click on more options, and it allows you to do something really useful, and it is called Security Challenge. The security challenge allows you to put your password through and in death test. That means last pass will analyze your security off all your passwords and take your step by step through, improving your pulse words to make them even more secure. A good example here would be if you have five different accounts and they all using the same password. Your security challenge from last part would flag that and say, Hang on a minute. You've got five accounts using exactly the same password, and that's not advisable. So let us help you to improve the security off your passwords, and it will take you. As I said, step by, step through to improving your passwords. Something else that you can do under this more options button here is that you can change your identities. You can open your favorites. You can learn more about last pass But more importantly, under the advanced option, you have a couple off options. If you're already using an existing password manager and you want to transfer your information to last past, you have the opportunity to import that data directly into last pass. If, on the other hand, you have been using laws passed with some time, and you are now ready to maybe keep a backup copy somewhere securely, you have the option to export all your passwords. Either there's a CIA zvi file. What is an encrypted file? Or you can save your WiFi passwords externally, what will your form fills? You can export in just the same way. Not many password managers allow you to do that. But if you wish to do that, last past gives you this opportunity to keep a backup copy safe, insecure on your own systems. And on top off that, if you really wish to do that, you also have the opportunity to print all your sights or all your secure notes on paper and then file it somewhere once again, safe and secure. So you might agree that this is so simple to use. It's an excellent tool, and on top of that. It's absolutely free. But remember, I said earlier, I have a premium account. Yes, I do. Why do I have a premium account? Even though last part is completely free, it is only free on desktop or laptop computers, and you can have it on more than one computer. Like I'm using two different computers. I installed it onto computers, and I have access to all my passwords from one single account. If you wish to use last past, though, on a tablet may be an android tablet or in IOS tablet, there will be a nominal charge that will be built to you. That makes you a premium user. So in addition to me using it on my computers, I also use it on my laptops on my tablet. So the nominal charge, I believe last time I renewed my account for something like 17 or $15 per year. It's a very small account, a smell, very small payment for a security to all of my passwords, and it's definitely worth considering if you wish to use it on tablets. Well, that, in essence, concludes the overview to my absolute favorite password manager, and it also brings me to the end of this class. I hope you found this password manager tool overview useful to you.
